Hola Shirley

Yes, sometimes the translations aren't literal. We tend to use the most natural way to say the same thing in English, like in this case. This results in using a conjugated verb in Spanish and a noun in English as you said, but the message is the same. 

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos cordiales
